All CMS students are required to read Bystander, by James Preller.

As you read, pay close attention to Eric Hayes, the main character (protagonist).

Take notes on significant/important moments that reveal his character over the course of the book. *

* You may take notes in whatever form you choose.  Your English teachers will collect your notes in September.

All students should also read a minimum of two other books this summer.

Summer reading will be shared with classmates through creative projects and writing assignments in the fall.

(We encourage reaching far beyond the required minimum!)
